I've had this a bunch of times but am finally getting around to reviewing it.

It pours a very clear light orange, almost yellow/gold color.

It just smells of fresh astringent hops. Piney, slightly fruity.

The taste is where it excels. It has a nice pungent/ bitter bitterness, with that class lagunitas hop profile, follow up very nicely with a nice malted wheat backbone. The wheat plays a nice character in balancing the bite of the hops.

Overall. This is one of my favorites. So glad they have it in 6 packs. It is now time to put Hop Stoopid in 6 packs. That one is even better.

Served chilled in a SN pint glass

A - pours a beautiful golden yellow, lots of head that sticks around for quite some time

S - hops, citrus, and spice

T - lots of citrus and bitterness from the hops initially, then a big malty backbone.

M - fairly dry, alcohol is well hidden. Not too thin

O - overall, this is an easy drinking ale, and not just your run of the mill pale ale. Definitely would drink this again.

This beer pours a clear yellow with a thin head and lacing. The aroma is grapefruit and lemons with some wheat malt in the background. The flavor is mainly grapefruit with a mild hop bitterness that is nicely offset by the wheat malt. The mouthfeel is light-medium. Lagunitas A Little Sumpin Sumpin Ale is a good brew. Recommended.

Reviewed from notes.

Pours a lightly-hazed sunny yellow color with a stable two finger head and decent whorls of lacing on the glass.

Smells at first like a freshly sliced pineapple, but further investigation reveals orange and lemon peel, wheat twang, and an even build of florals and perfume with a touch of herbal and resinous hopping.

Taste follows suit of the nose, but de-emphasizes the citrus peel somewhat and magnifies the resinous / pith aspects of the hopping to keep that hoppy bite going upon the tongue. Long extended bitter finish that just won't quit.

Medium body and carbonation levels, a bit oily.
